EHRC 1819-14 Civil society capacity building and reporting: Convention against Torture

The aim of this project is to prepare an independent shadow response to the list of issues, representing Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in England and Wales, for the Committee against Torture's sixth periodic review of the UK. More specifically, the project aims to: In the 2018/19 financial year: • Facilitate events to build the capacity of CSOs working across England and Wales to engage with the Convention review process • Consult with CSOs on the key human rights concerns in England and Wales for input into a CSO shadow report to the Committee • Coordinate and draft an independent CSO shadow report with a coalition of CSOs from across England and Wales, and submit this report to the Committee against Torture in advance of their 25 March 2019 deadline. In the 2019/20 financial year: • Launch the shadow report with relevant stakeholders in England and Wales • Present this evidence on behalf of the coalition of CSOs to the Committee against Torture at the in-session briefings which the Committee will organise for civil society organisations ahead of the UK state examination • Produce a short evaluation report As the project spans across two financial years the Commission will need to confirm the availability of funds for 2019/20 at a later stage.
